About "New Wunderkammer of Rococo"
This exhibition features contemporary interpretation of Wunderkammer, bringing together the inspiring 3D prints, digital paintings and historical ornamental prints. After appreciating and comparing these paintings accompanied by Rococo illustrations, visitors may understand the reflection of the artist on this historical style. Inspired by Rococo ornamental prints sponsored by MAK - Austrian Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna and V&A - Victoria and Albert Museum in London, students from School of Creative Media in the class of Topics in Media Arts led by Tobias Klein have created these amazing 3D prints.

About "Utopia of Ornaments"
Robert Lettner was a pioneer in interdisciplinary artistic research. Since early 1990s, he started to make the digital paintings by using computer-generated algorithms and models. He used digital technology to reproduce ornaments. At the same time, he questioned original values of the digital age. In order to show the fascinating ornamental world of Robert Lettner, this exhibition presents 12 works of Lettner in categories of Order and chaos, Macro and micro level, Arabesque patterns, Colors, and Couple.
